Let’s get this out in the open.  When I grow up, I want to be The Pioneer Woman. I want to look out my window and see a prairie or a hill or a beach…anything but a neighboring tract home.  I want to write about life and inspire people around me and not kill every […]

I am genetically programmed to love peaches.  Really.  I am. Eight generations of my family are buried in Weatherford, Texas, a small town renowned for their peaches.  They grow six varieties of peaches that come ripe throughout the summer like waves of fuzzy infantrymen.  I love peaches and Weatherford so very much that I even […]
